Whurl

An API Playground. This code is deployed and available for public use.

  • Great for evaluating an API
  • Useful for doing story acceptance when developing an API
  • Gives pretty-printed output and the browser saves your input making it easy to reuse

Usage

Deployed on Heroku

Goals

  • Use HTTPS for all requests, assume all users are passing sensitive data
  • Store as little as possible, assume all users want privacy
  • Provide a usable tool for working with APIs
  • Further the use of Whurl through viral "whurls" - the urls that represent an API request
  • Prevent abuse - users should not be able to use Whurl as a proxy for a DoS attack or similar

Note on Patches/Pull Requests

  • Fork the project.
  • Make your feature addition or bug fix.
  • Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
  • Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
  • Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
